Has U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) scheduled a CTPAT Validation (onsite audit) of your company or your foreign supplier/affiliate?
Are you confident that your company and/or your foreign supplier/affiliate is in compliance with the CTPAT security criteria (requirements)?
CBP performs a CTPAT Validation within 2-12 months after a company receives the CTPAT Certification. CTPAT Validations take place every 3-4 years after the initial Validation.
The purpose of a CTPAT Validation of your company or business partner is to verify compliance with the CTPAT security criteria and what was/has been documented in the Security Profile and uploaded via the CTPAT Portal.
If your company is a U.S. importer, CBP will also conduct an on-site CTPAT Validation of one of your foreign suppliers.
Your company must pass the domestic and foreign (if applicable) CTPAT Validation(s) in order to maintain your CTPAT Certified status.
Our team of advisors can prepare your company for your upcoming domestic or foreign CTPAT Validation.
We will perform an on-site CTPAT Compliance Assessment. During the visit we will:
- train key managers on the CTPAT security criteria, benefits the company receives from the program, criticality of complying at all times with the requirements and how to prepare for and pass the CTPAT Validation.
- meet individually with key managers to understand their responsibilities
- review policies and procedures
- assess the physical security and access controls of the facility
Following the on-site CTPAT Compliance Assessment, we will provide your company with a CTPAT Compliance Assessment Report and Corrective Actions Plan.
We will develop all of the necessary policies, procedures and forms needed.
We will work with your company and/or your foreign supplier/affiliate to ensure compliance.
Do not take the risk of not being absolutely sure that your company or your foreign supplier/affiliate will pass the CTPAT Validation.

Your organization isn’t in the business of conducting assessments, but our company is and has been at the forefront for many years.
